WANNA BE A GOD?

Your time is coming. Guide a fledgling civilization through the obstacles of life. From humble beginnings, watch as they evolve and advance throughout the ages under your wing. Influence their decisions and punish the unfaithful with a wide range of godly abilities. Interact with objects, create disasters, and launch clueless creatures into orbit. This is your world, and nothing can stop you from having fun.

Our goal is to bring back the features you know and love from classic god games and spice them up with fresh ideas, a modern physics engine, and stylized visuals developed by a few of our very own industry heroes.

NATURE AS YOU KNOW IT

In The Universim, nature is just as wonderful and unpredictable as ever. Every planet comes with a few surprises that are sure to challenge your civilization. From tornadoes that consume everything in their path, to thunderous earthquakes that threaten to split your civilization in two. If you treat nature poorly, it might just show you how brutal and unforgiving it can be. Each planet you encounter will have a unique underbelly. Some planets are tranquil and filled to the brim with resources, while others are barren and dangerous. Be careful out there!

Something as simple as the cycle between night and day can play an important role. Wild animal attacks are more common at night, as are frequent temperature drops. Daytime offers a little more safety from the harshness of the world. With the inclusion of a full, four-season cycle, a planet’s biomes can change drastically, making it extremely difficult for Nuggets to survive brutal winters without proper preparation ahead of time.

THE STORY OF A SPECIES

Meet the Nuggets, a fragile and whacky species that relies on your leadership to build, research, and advance. Help them, and they will soon begin writing their own history in the stars. Every Nugget is a unique individual with a distinct set of characteristics. Just like any other living creature, Nuggets must have access to a few vital resources in order to survive. This includes water to drink, food to eat, and recreational activities to increase their happiness and quality of life. Recreational activities may include blowing stuff up. You’ve been warned.

As you spend time with the Nuggets, You will see that they behave like natural, living beings. They have their own thoughts and needs - and they even have the ability to make their own decisions at times. We want to give you a feeling that you’re interacting with a living organism, almost like you’re messing around with a rather chaotic ant farm.

Discover Wild Life

Discover planets with Drones and Rovers, equip rockets with right technologies. Depends on the planet factors such as planet distance, temperature and etc you’ll need to equip your Discovery Machines with the right tools. Put more solar panels to keep your rover, that can take probs on the planets and give you idea of how much resources lays in ground of that planet, to charge it batteries faster during the day time. Equip your rockets with bigger gas tanks to make it travel longer and to give a chance for Astronauts Nuggets to come back home.

ORGANIC GAMEPLAY

Planets in The Universim aren’t just made up of a bunch of neatly-arranged objects; everything is linked together and plays a unique role in each planet’s ecosystem. Every tree your civilization cuts down, every resource they mine and every animal they hunt will affect the world they’re living in. A lack of trees and high levels of pollution will raise the global temperature over time, while reckless hunting or fishing might cause the extinction of some species. It’s your mission to manage how the Nuggets collect and utilize resources. What mark will you leave on the ecosystems that existed millions of years before your arrival? Will you use every available resource and expand at an unprecedented pace, or will you methodically create a more sustainable way of life for your civilization?

These are living, breathing worlds where everything is interconnected. We aim to provide you with an unique experience unlike any of the god games you have played before. Every decision you or your civilization makes will have consequences.

CHANGE IS INEVITABLE

Your journey begins with a blank slate. There will only be two Nuggets at first, Adahy and Elu. They are the first of their kind, a spark of life that will change the world forever. As Nuggets progress, their technology evolves alongside them. You will watch as crude stone huts transform into architectural wonders and the fires that once protected your civilization are replaced by the magic of electricity.

LEAVE YOUR MARK

What kind of god will you be? Will your civilization become heavily dependent on natural resources, consuming fluffy bunnies and nonrenewable resources in equal measure? Or will you guide them towards a more sustainable future that relies on agricultural proficiency, responsible hunting, and green energy? You have the tools to change everything, and your actions have far-reaching implications.

A UNIQUE JOURNEY EVERY TIME YOU PLAY

Our procedural world generation is built around the gameplay, and not the other way around. We make sure that fun is always the number one priority. While procedural generation guarantees a lot of replayability, it doesn’t automatically make the experience worthwhile. That’s why we’ve invested a lot of time into not only creating unique and beautiful planets, but also giving each one its own set of challenging characteristics. Every star in the sky points the way to a procedurally-generated planet just waiting to be colonized. With the right technology, any planet can be yours. You can terraform lifeless planets into stunning utopias or simply suck every last drop of natural resources from it before moving on. We want to make sure that you’ll have fun with each planet that you encounter.

Burning Skies Patch V0.0.33 Is Now Live


Greetings, Creators!


Aaanddd we’re back again! It’s been a hectic month as usual, including an unfortunate situation where a few of our developers got sick. As a result, we had to delay the patch a bit, but it was all worth it. We’re slowly moving towards the Space Age, as you’ve likely noticed, which means we have plenty of exciting features in the works that we can’t wait to share with you. Behind the scenes, our team has been doing some amazing work on alien planets with unique flora and fauna, a reworked pathfinding system (always improvements being made to this cheeky system), and ALIENS! The best news is, all of this is not too far, far away.


Don’t forget to leave us a review on Steam if you’re enjoying the content! It gives our programmers, who are currently chained to their desks, a little something to smile about.


Read about all of the “Burning Skies” additions below:


Mysterious Boxes

The sky isn’t falling. Not yet, at least. Tell your Nuggets not to panic, as the mysterious boxes from the cosmos could be a gift dressed in really ugly wrapping paper. These also aren’t the kind of boxes you’ll need a credit card to open. You’re thinking of the wrong game studio if this section had you concerned. These ones are free! However, they could contain some nasty business if you open them carelessly. Research more about them and they may drop a few hints about what could be inside.




Legendary Structures

Now you can build a few wonders of the world! Nuggets will finally have something to be proud of. You can beautify your civilization with the Eiffel Tower, a few Pyramids, or the one-and-only Notre-Dame de Paris! However, you won’t be able to build them until you find all of their blueprints, which are locked inside of those mysterious boxes we mentioned. Culture from the stars! In the future, these boxes will also contain blueprints for alien technology.








Spontaneous Fires

In what is probably an unfortunately-timed addition, considering the other contents of this patch, we have implemented random fires into the game. Mismanagement of buildings or rapid climate change can lead to fires starting around your city.



Pollution

Death is in the air! Certain buildings will produce pollution, which, coupled with your overall treatment of the environment, may lead to global warming. This can result in more natural disasters, brutal winters, the extinction of certain animal species, and potentially the end of Nuggets altogether. You’ve been warned!




Fashion

The Nuggets’ sense of fashion and overall taste evolves alongside the civilization. It all started with a few leaves and the odd loincloth, and now Nuggets can be seen with fancy haircuts, dresses, and suits. Sadly, Nuggets still don’t wear any pants.



Automation

While the early ages of your civilization required varying amounts of micromanagement, modern conveniences and technology allow you to take a more macro approach. Sit back and relax; buildings like Modern Age Factories will produce everything you need without Nuggets being present. However, having a few Nuggets inside to supervise things will speed up production somewhat.



Upgraded Farm

The power of technology! Farms look so glorious now that they are fully-automated. Those mechanical claws will do all of the harvesting, while the mineral-regulating irrigation system will ensure that Bloody Diarrhea fruit tastes better than ever.



Screenshot Tool

Ever wanted to grab stunning 4K screenshots of the game with the press of a button? We’ve got you! There’s now a little button on the main HUD you can use to snap a screenshot at any resolution of your choosing. Share them with the community! We’ll add the best ones to our various pages.



Bug Fixes

  • Fixed: Issue when clicking on a building panel button caused the Wiki button to be activated and Nuggets to stop doing any kind of work.
  • Fixed: Issue when clicking Prioritize in a building panel would not display any indication of the building being prioritized.
  • Fixed: Issue with the Building List Panel where Nuggets could be over-assigned to buildings.
  • Fixed: Issue where camera shake would persist even when the game was paused.
  • Fixed: Issue where the Building List Panel would enable shifts on all buildings when opened after load.

  • Fixed: UI bug where the research progress bar would be inaccurate after enacting the “Science Law”.
  • Fixed: Protection Dome sound effect. Dramatically reduced volume and range.

  • Fixed: Issue where camera shake was fading out when the game was paused.
  • Fixed: Issue where the Gunpowder perk was unlocking the Chemical Factory.
  • Fixed: Issue where the system would assume that an Exile Village building belonged to the player, which could lead to an issue where a Save Game was not loading anymore.
  • Fixed: Issue that lead to issues with the Steam API due to an incorrect directory name.
  • Fixed: Issue with a small trap projector not displaying it properly.
  • Fixed: Issue with the fishing hut perk, which visually lead to the Refined Material perk unlock, but was not actually unlocking it
  • Fixed: Updating time to grow in crop info.
  • Fixed: Wonky night lighting for certain modern buildings.
  • Fixed: Issue where you could sacrifice Nuggets at an unfinished temple.
  • Fixed: Issue where a Farm’s crops timer was not updating properly and was resulting in factories not producing food.
  • Fixed: Issue where grass was causing infinite load times when a new game was started.
  • Fixed: Issue where Farms were able to operate without using any electricity, even if they required it.

There were plenty of interesting challenges to overcome this month, which unfortunately means we had to push the trading system between your civilization and Exile Villages to the next patch. It needs a little more work. We are currently building a final road map towards full release and we couldn’t be more excited! We know it has taken quite a while to get to where we are now, but we hope we made the development process as transparent, informative, and fun for you as possible. Making a game of this scale is no easy matter, which means that creating something good takes time. We want The Universim to be memorable. Luckily, we have all of you backing us up and keeping us on track! Plus, all of your feedback continues to make the game EVEN BETTER. Much love to everyone!


Once again, don’t forget to drop us a review on Steam and chat to us over on our Discord server. You can even expect some cool stuff on Twitter and Facebook. After all, you don’t want to miss any sneaky info drops about alien planets, do you?


Have an amazing weekend!


All our love,

Crytivo
